HB1113 -- Obesity Liability Protection

SUPPORT: Rep. Ralph Foley has impressed us yet again. Foley authored HB1113 which grants immunity from civil liability for those in the food and beverage industry if they are faced with a claim concerning weight gain, obesity or a health condition associated with weight gain or obesity that likely resulted from the long term consumption of certain foods or beverages. Legislating personal accountability? It's a shame we have to go there, but it's nice to see our legislators providing some common sense shield to potential nusiance lawsuits.

STATUS: Passed House 76-21. Assigned to Senate Committee on Corrections, Criminal and Civil Matters, Sen. Bray sponsoring.
